Husband and I missed Keith's send off to Washington. I thought it was on the 7th, but it was really on the 2nd. If I had been thinking and not just spacing out, maybe I would have realized that it would be a wee bit silly to have a send off after he'd already been sworn in. Do'h!
Do us Minnesotans proud Brother Keith!
